Heavy Metal Baghdad

Found this, quite by accident this morning.


It is part 1 of 5, of "Heavy Metal Baghdad", in which a couple of guys from a small, independent media outlet try to get together with "the only heavy metal band in Iraq". But what is fascinating to me is to actually see Baghdad. Their cameras are rolling as they move around in the city, and it is shocking, terrifying, and fascinating.

News that we see from Iraq is all quick still shots, or short bits of video, or interviews with people. I've seen more of Iraq in the last 10 minutes, watching these videos, than I have in.. three or four years of watching television and reading on mainstream web news outlets.

Check it out.
